Easy Microwave Cookies with Leftover Egg Whites

Just mix, shape, and microwave. Your cookies are done.


Egg white
4 tablespoons
Vegetable oil
3 tablespoons
Cake flour or tempura flour
100 g


1. Combine the egg white, sugar, and vegetable oil in a bowl and mix well.
2. Add the cake flour and mix with a spatula until it comes together.
3. Divide into bite-sized pieces and roll into balls. Lightly press down on the tops.
4. Arrange on kitchen parchment paper with 1 cm between each piece and microwave at 600 W for 2 minutes. Keep an eye on them. If they seem to need more time, microwave for short increments until they're done.

6. Note: During the warm season or other times when your room may be hot, let the dough chill in the refrigerator first and/or reduce the amount of vegetable oil to make shaping it easier.

Story Behind this Recipe

Whenever I make pasta carbonara, I have leftover egg whites. It's such a waste to just throw them out, so when I make carbonara, I make these simple cookies as well.
